LOOK WITHIN

LOCATION: Dane County Juvenile Detention Center - Madison, WI USA

I was invited to paint a mural with teens at the Juvenile Detention Center in Madison, Wisconsin. Most of the youth there are awaiting their court date, so it can be a pretty intense atmosphere, which is why the Making Justice Program started connecting artists with teens to brighten the space. I was the fourth one to paint their walls and wanted to bring something crisp, bold and powerful.

Where this mural sits in the building, being the last and first thing the teens see before and after court, I wanted to bring a peaceful and powerful image -  a reminder to reflect and find peace and clarity within. The central faces are split down the middle and show regardless of who you are (gender, race, background), change and a desire to create a better life for yourself begin with you. First get to know and respect yourself and positivity can be shown to and shared with others. The surrounding mandala image was chosen because of their representation of inner peace throughout the ages. Waves at the center stand for the ripple effect in the power in being authentic with yourself, radiating to those around you. Read more about the meaning of the mural & experience here.

A HUGE thank you to the staff of Dane County Juvenile Detention Center, Jesse Vieau and the staff of Teen Bubbler at the Madison Public Library and their partners for coordinating the Making Justice Program. More cities need to implement community projects like this!

FORK & TAP RESTAURANT

Branding & Wall Design - Port Washington, WI
Spray paint & Wall paint

If walls could talk they’d say “wow that’s a lot of tape!” The branding was made with spray paint as well as the yellow fading highlights, the rest - wall paint. This was a very precise and challenging project, which I loved! It turned out great! As soon as they are open for business and I can get there to take pics, I’ll share images of the completed space.

SILENCIO

Spray Paint
Location: Drassanes, Barcelona, Spain

Afternoon solo free-hand piece using all the paints in my bag. I wasn’t sure what to do with the background, so I created a psychedelic 60s Spanish look (porque estoy aqui!). Silence is golden- meaning, if we are quiet with ourselves allowing our mind to be at peace (meditation ;), we can discover the true desires & compassion within our hearts.

Super quick afternoon free-hand piece with my good friend Bubu. I painted the face and she painted the colorful mandala image. My first one back on the streets of Spain!

WAYS MAKE WAVES

LOCATION: J&H Auto Madison, WI USA
Spray Paint

This was a quick free-hand wall before I head to Spain. Totally free handed and all done with cans of spray paint. My friend Isaac Herlitzka stopped by and painted the white waves- the rest was created by me. It represents our inner focus becoming our actions, which transform and shape what is around us, causing waves, causing growth (represented by flowers). It was a very rough wall (as you can see in the closeup) so much of the detail had to be compromised, leaving it simple and bold.

VESSEL

BBQ Burners Festival - Madison, WI / Sponsored by Ironlak & Momentum Art Tech - Spray paint (Free-hand)


Vessel: The teaching that our body is sacred reaches beyond sharing intimacy. To care for this body with regular exercise, healthy food and daily focus allows a clear connection to yourself and those around you. This has been a lesson throughout the ages and is becoming overlooked today. When you are functioning in this optimum heightened awareness, you are able to value what surrounds and is inside you and opens your ability to understand and appreciate every day life.

Event: Momentum Art Tech Madcity's first graffiti fest took Madison by storm! Not only was I one of a handful of non-writers amongst 50+ artists, but only one of 3 women. Various businesses along Monona Drive signed up for us to paint their walls, but the work will only be visible through the end of September(18) so make your way there fast. It's worth the drive! Looking forward to next year, guys.

Spray paint - Free-hand - Hidden Wall / Madison, WI

Our difficulties can feel as if we are feeding an entity bigger than what is seen. In this position, we must fight to find balance no matter how daunting the situation.

REMEMBER YOU

Spray and acrylic paint on raw canvas 7ft x 5ft (213cm x 152cm)

Remembering where you've been before this lifetime - understanding the intricate workings of the universal force within.

This was my first piece after a long break from large paintings. I couldn't wait any longer, this one needed to be made and it had to be BIG! Every time I closed my eyes and asked for guidance on what I should do, I saw painting in an unheated space outside, where I'm currently staying. "But there is a ton of stuff being stored in there and it's below 0 degree Fahrenheit outside!" I thought. I trusted my vision and soon got to moving the items aside with help, explaining in not so many words "it has to be here, it's what I saw." After getting everything moved and the area surrounded in tarps to keep in as much heat as possible, the temperature leveled at 14F (-10C), but with one small space heater to warm my paints and another next to the canvas for drying, I stuck some foot warmers in my boots and got to work. Only being able to paint an hour at a time, this one took about a week to complete, but I feel it's my best work so far, funny how often struggle yields our finest selves. I felt the passion flow through me for the first time in a while, both the piece and I coming to life in the dead of winter.

HER CALL

Spray paint with acrylic details on raw canvas 7ft x 5ft (213cm x 152cm)

Your strength and clarity come from a place beyond the physical. It is there when you call upon it, deriving from a source of mystery and infinite power, guiding you to your true purpose, releasing all that is within.

WHERE I BELONG

Spray and acrylic paint on raw canvas 6ft x 5ft (183cm × 152cm)
No matter where we end up, there is a place of mystery deep within us, beckoning us to find ourselves, to connect with where we are from, where we belong.

That isn't smoke, but rather her essence emanating from within. Both dark and light come forth. Not positive or negative- What is.

DISCOVERY

Spray paint - Free-hand

Location: Llacuna, Poblenou, Barcelona - Spain

This was my final piece in Barcelona. It gives me a feeling of exploring and absorbing the world around you, but the best part being, discovering yourself along the way.

Set up on a busy corner, I had all sorts stop by to give me props, which felt great to create something that resonated with such a diverse range of people - age wise and culturally. Unfortunately though, it was left unfinished. Being my final night before flying out, I was nearly done when 3 kids took a paint can and laughed as they defaced my day's work in front of me-  I helplessly watched having to decide between saving the piece or protect my things from being stolen. The most difficult part about it was, not having enough time to fix it AND add details. I did what I could to rework the face, having to walk away as night fell, my last mark on this trip only partway there.
